About Lauren E. Hawley , MD


Dr. Hawley is board certified in General Surgery. She received her MD with highest honors from Baylor College of Medicine and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. She served her General Surgery residency at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and was named Outstanding Chief Resident.

Dr. Hawley has a continuing interest in minimally invasive surgery because of the many benefits it offers her patients. She decided to pursue advanced training and completed a fellowship in Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Dr. Hawley returned to practice at Keck Medicine of USC because she was excited to work with such an outstanding team.



For many patients, undergoing surgery marks a major life event. I strive to support my patients and their families from the time of our initial meeting through their post-operative recovery and beyond. I chose to pursue additional training in minimally invasive surgery to offer my patients surgery with shorter recovery times in order to return to their lives sooner. 


I am passionate about bariatric surgery and I believe it is a powerful tool to offer patients sustained weight loss and reduction or elimination of associated medical conditions. To any patient thinking of undergoing weight-loss surgery, I would encourage you to make an appointment to see me or one of my partners to learn more about the options from an expert. My goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.
